Review: Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Review: Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

As with the execrable Ten Tiny Breaths, I read Hopeless after seeing many glowing reviews, and I was left feeling disgusted by the behavior of the main characters.  I can only believe that people who love books featuring stalkers have never been stalked themselves, and that is a wonderful thing.  However, it distresses me whenever stalking and violence are portrayed to girls and women as some kind of manly ideal.  I, unfortunately, was the victim of a stalker (threats to… Read more »
